Users petition to 3: unlock the Motorola A920
The British 3G operator 3 released the Symbian UIQ based Motorola A920, but users are not happy that only signed applications can run on this device. Applications developed for the Sony Ericsson P800 (also Symbian UIQ) are not running on this new device. An on-line petition is now available for users to sign.

The petition says:

"To: Hutchinson 3G
We, the undersigned, petition Hutchinsons 3G, with respect to the limited functionality, and plain dis-functionality of the Motorola A920.

Most if not all of the undersigned have bought this phone in the firm belief that it was an advanced mobile phone with Internet, PDA, AGPS, bluetooth and open email functionality. Certainly the phone has been advertised on-line by numerous sites that it will have all the above functionality, only to slowly discover after it was purchased that it had none of these abilities.

Although it seems bluetooth will be available for a fee in the near future, this is to some extent good news.

A conducted survey of Motorola A920 owners particularly speak out,
and stronly agree that they would like to see the A920 have:
1.) Full Internet access.
2.) 3rd Part applications to work.
3.) Bluetooth functionality. (Though we believe Hutchinsons are working on rectifying this).
4.) Own email address capability.

We request that Hutchinson 3G take this petition into consideration, listen to it's client base, and open the phone up."
